The title of this blog comes from Emily Dickenson’s verse:

Tell the truth, but tell it slant

…the truth must dazzle gradually

or every man be blind

I believe in truth…real true, truth…not the “if it’s true for you” silliness that seems to have gotten its ridiculous foot in the door.

Not to put too fine a philosophical point on it, I believe that truth is that which corresponds to reality.  It is real and it can be known; not always easily or in such a way that arrogant certainty can be maintained, but known nonetheless.

But true truth can so easily be missed if we are not careful to call attention to it creatively, subtly and lovingly.

I think that’s what Emily meant.
